Whose News? is a half-hour documentary produced by Auckland Indymedia which looks at who owns New Zealand's major media outlets and why we should be worried about it. The New Zealand mediascape is one of the most commercialised media markets in the world with a high concentration of ownership in the hands of just a few overseas companies: Canwest, ANM, Fairfax and INL. Whose News? looks at what this pattern of media ownership means for our democracy and what we can do about it.
